Neat mansion. Not as crowded as others. The staff was excellent. It was a cool day outside yet it was freezing in the mansion! My toes were frozen by the time I left.

I would even have enjoyed more plaques because there was just so many interesting things.
Amazing.!!! Doris Duke was one interesting and amazing woman! Her home a mix of past and present . You can see how she loved her home at Rough Point. Possibly my favorite or the Newport Mansion. Such a human feel here! I will always come back to visit!
